All my zombie books are on my website.  It is Halloween and Zombies are out wandering around looking for you.

What would you do if you saw a Zombie????  What would you do if you killed a Zombie????  Would you tell anyone????

Something to think about.  The time is here.  Zombies are looking for human flesh.  My choice of weapon is a hammer or tire iron.  That would be easy for me to handle and carry.  What is your choice of weapom?

I love a good Zombie Movie and there are a lot to choose from.  Read a Zombie story watch a Zombie movie, Either way have A Happy Zombie Halloween

Get Up Early/ Stay Up Late

The only way to finish a story or novel is to get up early or stay of late.  Stop watching television.  I know that watching televison is my down fall.  I start watching it and then the next thing I know my writing time is gone.

Find out what is zapping your writing time. 

Figure out if you write better in the morning or late at night.  I write better, right when I get up.  I get up and I write before I do anything else. 

Do this for you.  don't right for fame and fortune.  Write cause you want to write.  No one cares if you are loosing sleep.  No one cares that stopped watching television.  This is your dream, your desire.  It matters to you.

I write cause this is what I want to do.  I do a happy dance everytime I sell a book.  I do not do this for anyone else, cause frankly, no one really cares if I write or not.  Sure, someone might if I start making millions.  For now I get up early before I go to work.  I write at work, I write in my car I write on my breaks I am writing all the time.

Are you writing today???/

3 Print Books & 8 E-Books In One Year

I am not famous.  You may never of heard of me.  You found me for a reason.  I am a writer.  An Indie writer.  I write everyday and I have published 3 print books and have 8 E-Books on, in one year.

My first book My Bible--My God  www.amazon.com/dp/B006N0ZDGW

My Second Book  Always & Forever  www.amazon.com/dp/B006M8PAOA

I did that in 2011

2012 I started Zombie Zoo Series http://sharonleejohnson.com

I am now almost down with the first draft of a book I am co-authoring with Stephen Ormsby.  How did I do this all in one year??

I work a full time job.  I need more sleep than 6 hours.  So I write when I can.  I am stubborn and determined to be published and sell books on www.amazon.com

Did I know what I was doing when I started, not a thing.  I had my file formatted and I had no idea what to do when I recieved the file.  So if you think you can not do this, I am here to say If I can you can. 

I am going to start blogging on how I did this.  I am proud of what I accomplished and know that great things are going to happen in the year 2013. 

Want to join me on my journey????/

Have a question about publishing?  Formatting??  Writing???  Ask me....Leave a comment and lets get published!


I have two days off together and that is what I do.  I write and am in or around the computer. 

I write in longhand and on the computer. 

Tell me about your writing dreams, your publishing dreams

Write something today

First Draft In A Month

I am co-authoring a book with stephen Ormsby and we will have the first draft down in the end of the month.  Who would of thought.  Not me.  I went in this with no thought and we didn't even know each other.  To my surprise, it is working out.  We are on the same page and and are not afraid to tell what we are thinking.

So this is a good thing for me.  The fact that we are writing so fast means that we have time to work on our own writing, plus get this book published.  It is a series and we already are plotting the next book out.  so this is very exciting.

I will tell you that since I started co-authoring a book , my writing time has increased.  I am more productive.  I have some one to answer to and I am realizing that my ideas are not that crazy and some one likes my writing and ideas.  It is giving me more self esteem and the will to write more.

You might want to think about co-authoring a book.  You don't have to give up your own stories or voice.  You might find that you are a better writer than you think

Write something today.

Word Count

I wrote 5,000 words today.  Not sure what happened to me, but I can't seem to stop writing.  I have been writing and blogging for the past 12 hours.

It has been a great day and am thrilled at what I have accomplished .  This does not happen very often, but I know what I want to do and I have deadlines in my head and if I don't write I will not make my deadline. 

No one is making me write.  It is what I want to do.

What did you do today???

How many words did you write today?

5 Things to Ask Yourself Before Co-Authoring a Book

I am co-writing a book with someone on the other side of the world.  Stephen Ormsby.  I jumped into this without much thought.  So far it is working.  We are more than half way through the first draft.  Somethings to consider before jumping into writing a book.

1.  Stay true to your Morals and Beliefs.  Make sure that the two of you are on the same page with the tone of the story,

2.  Determine a schedule.  Stephen and I do not have a schedule and that is working for us at the moment.  Do you want to work on the book everyday and neglect your other writing??

3.  Do you like the story line?  Is a series and are you willing to commit to a series???

4.  Is your family on board???  Are they willing to let you write guilt free, cause now you have someone to answer to , besides yourself

5.  Can you accept that your partner will rewrite your scene???

Writing Dreams Coming True

My writing career is moving right along.  Faster than I thought it would.  I am co-authoring a book with Stephen Ormsby.  We now have Beta Readers who are willing to read our work in their spare time.  How cool is that???

Never give up on your dream.  Don't be afraid to take chances.  I have never co-authored a book before, but so far it is working on.  We seem to think alike. 

If you give up you will never know what might of happened.

So I write everyday, I look to GOD and ask him to guide me.

One word at a time.

Writing When Sick

I have been sick this week.  Cold, stuffy nose and all the fun things that go along with that.  I still went to work and I still wrote.  My mind was fuzzy and it was hard to focus, but I did struggle on.

I wrote in long hand ever chance I had.  I didn't sit in front of the computer was way to tired.  Bit I could lean back on the pillows and write in long hand.  I wrote at work while I was at lunch and on my breaks.

So I was still writing and it kept my mind off on how terrible I felt.

Then when I did feel better I just typed my notes into the computer and kept on writing.  We all get sick.  The cold and flu season is here, but we can write through it.  the story must be written and I am not going to let the cold get the best of me.

Co-Authoring A Book

Would you write a book with someone you don't know, never met and just met on the internet?

Think about that.  Would you co-author a book with a total stranger?

That is what I am doing.  I have put my other book aside to work on a new story with another author.  We are 5,000 words into the book and plan on finishing the book by the end of the year.  That is a lot of writing to do for the next three months.

I will keep you posted on the progress.  I will keep you posted on the ups and downs and if we meet our deadline

One Word At A Time

Writing is just like walking.  One step at a time.  You will get to your destination.  One word at a time, you willl get to the end of the story and that is all that matters.  Doesn't matter how long it takes.

I know that some writers write 10,000 words a day and others write less some write more.  The important thing to do is to write no matter what.

I write ever day.  I might write 50 words or I might write 3,000 words, but the important thing is that I am writing and that is fine with me. 

Some days the words flow and others they don't .  Not sure why, but that is life.  So I continue to write till the story is finished. 

I have 5 short stories up and 3 books within two years.  I think that is good.  http://sharonleejohnson.com  I don't compare myself to others or their progress.  I go at the pace that works for me.  I am working on two different stories and will have them up next year. 

So one word at a time, is the only way to write

Writing As You Go

I have working on a new story.  I like it and things were going good, then the ideas stopped and I need to figure out what to do next.  I know how the story will end, but now I have to fill in the middle.  So I need to outline and plot out the rest of the story.

I love the process of writing.  I love what I write.  So this is what I do.

How do you create your stories?????

Have any questions let me know and maybe I can help you get that story written.

10 Things I Do Before Writing A Story

1.  Figure out the word count.  short story?  Full length novel?

2.  Plot Points,  Major events that change the course of the story.

3.  Character Charts.

4.  I write the first and last scene.

5.  Find the tone of the story.  Light and funny or dark and scary?

6.  Have the book cover in my head to match the tone of the story.  I already have someone working on the cover even though it might be 5 months before the book is finished

7.  Set up writing schedule, so I know when the book will be finished.  Helps keep me on track.

8.  I don't talk about my story to anyone.  I write the story first

9.  Plot out the book.  Break it down into chapters and then scene by scene. That way, I know where I am going and won't get stuck

10.  Beleive in your story.  If I don't believe in my story, no one else will

Staring At A Blank Screen

Has that ever happened to you?  Staring at the computer screen and the blinking curser, that is mocking you.

You have no idea what is going to happen next to your character.  You want to stop writing, but you don't.  Something is driving you to finish the strory. 

You are a writer.  That is what you do.  You do not give up.  That is what Writer's do.

So I am sitting alone at my computer, thinking of what will happen next in my story.  I will not quit.  I am not going to give up.  Whether I sell a book or not, is not why I write.  I write cause I am a writer.

Why do you write????

So the next time you are staring at a blank computer screen and the blinking curser is mocking you, just smile, knowing you are not a lone.  Writers stare at the blank screen, till we fill the screen with words.
